Subject: Racism in the past
The racism in the past, and more specifically, revealed in its media, does not compare to the encouragement and promotion of racism in today's media. Just look at the hip-hop music that is loved by many blacks, that use the word,"n*gga" in much of it. If you look for it, it won't take long to find it. To pick on this serial because of racism, then you're ignoring the bigger picture, and what's going on in today's world. Anti-Semitism is alive a well, not just with Muslims, but within many European countries. If you become an activist to wipe out the "N" word in hip-hop music, you'll get a fight from the blacks who love that music, but if a white says it, he's a racist.

To pick on this serial with the "racism" mantra is being hypocritical, if you're not also fighting the racism that is in today's media, or pretending it's not as bad as in the past. Racism is much worse today. After all, in evolutionary circles, blacks are still not considered as evolved as whites, and kids are being indoctrinated with evolution in schools, today. Whenever a so-called "missing-link" is found and a few bones are all they have, an artist will always depict the creature with dark skin and wide nostrils... always! Under our noses, racism is being spawned in our public schools.

Lets not forget about the millions of pre-born black babies that have been murdered since 1973, and how Planned Parenthood will purposely have their abortion mills near black neighborhoods. BTW, the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a huge racist and she was never afraid of flaunting it.

Well folks this here movie is worth its weight ib gold to the viewer. It has a little sumpin for every one. But the best bits are no doubt the giant silverbacks and the scene where all the Geeta's line up so Dr. Magnus can make em into white folk, hilarious!!! Also for the voyeur out there in movie watchin land, the character Natcha who is Dr. Magnus's daughter is quite the 30's dreamboat with that weighty, chunky sexy 30's vogue body of hers. She has got a rear end only a true sodomite could love and she wiggles it good thru all the movie. They should have renamed the movie tho to "Attack of the Giant Watermelon eaters" or 'Natcha does Afreaka; cause you know she is just dying to hvae one of them Giant Porchmonkeys in the ole sackaroo! But its the uncircumsized Butterfield who really makes the show with his wicked ways. there is also a hint of incestual ways as Dr.Magnus in seversl scenes wantonely strokes the ample hindquarters of his daughter Natcha rather casually as the others querying stare at him wishing they could grab a handful too. I give it 5 stars for its everlasting comedy

I enjoyed this film and like to watch old films in general. They're usually much more interesting and entertaining than the modern junk. As an aside, I am able to place them in their historical context. I find no need to apologize for enjoying them. Who knows? Those of the future, hopefully more enlightened than our generations, may watch our modern films and condemn our age for its shallowness, decadence, and sickening violence. In our ways, we of the modern world are just as barbaric and vile as any who have gone before. Any smug self-righteousness is delusional.

Subject: Astonishing Racism
It has been pointed out in earlier commentary on other episodes in this series that one of the prevalent threads is overt racism, but Chapter 8 is the most astonishing example of this.

In this chapter, Dr. Manyus (benevolent/evil scientist) transforms black natives into white natives. The commentary that goes with this process is amazing, I won't spoil it for you. How far we have come, how far we have to go.
